National Academy of the Arts

Published by at 12:01 pm under Declan,Photography

When I was a junior at the University of Illinois, I worked as a Resident Counselor at the National Academy of the Arts in downtown Champaign, Illinois.

These are some prints I found from that time, 1986 or so. I can’t remember any of the names of the kids for sure.

Note the killer stereo! I think I spent a semester’s worth of financial aid on that puppy. It had on of Sony’s first commercial CD players!

And don’t miss the kickin’ TRS-80 Model III, with a 300 baud modem.

    Wow, a TRS-80. Chicks must have dug that, as that picture demonstrates. I had one of those, too, sans modem, and used it to write vocabulary quizzes. I think those were the last successful programs I ever wrote.

    The picture with you in it is priceless. I’ve now seen the young Declan and life will never be the same!
